BRUSSELS -- Marlink has expanded its Ku-band coverage to the North Sea. The coverage expansion will enable Marlink to offer WaveCall to customers operating in the region.

Marlink's WaveCall Ku-band VSAT provides data rates from 128 kbps to 1024 kbps for shore-to-vessel communications and 128 kbps to 256 kbps for vessel-to-shore communications.

“WaveCall provides always-on, reliable connectivity but with lower costs than Marlink's high-end Sealink solution,” says Tore Morten Olsen, CEO of Marlink. ”For companies only operating in the North Sea region that do not require the exceptionally high bandwidth that Sealink offers, WaveCall is a cost-effective solution.”
